We recently had our wedding at Portico, place was beautiful, the owners Amy and Kyle they were always helpful, open to answer any question and helped us with any special requirement. We visited different locations and options but a soon as we walked into Portico we knew for sure that this will be our magic place.
We highly recommend this venue to be your special place for your most beautiful day. Pictures from the wedding came out so beautiful, we add some decorations to the place but to be fair the place it self is beautiful as it is.
thank you Portico for make even more special our special day!!!

Kyle & Amy at Portico are AMAZING!!!! They made our day absolutely perfect!! From the time we booked until the day of our wedding the two of them were with us every step of the way. They were always there to answer our questions and fast! They offered a full package which made the planning super easy and stress free! The vendors they partner with are first class and made our wedding day everything we dreamed of!! We had a budget and with Portico we came well under the budget!! We had 150 guests at our wedding and we still hear from our guests how much fun they had at our wedding and we owe it all to Kyle & Amy at Portico!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! We so appreciate everything you did for us to make our day exactly what we dreamed of!!

Portico Wedding Venue was the absolute best place my husband and I could have chosen to get married. Kyle and Amy Schafer made all the preparations super easy and the companies they have teamed up with are fantastic as well. We got absolutely wonderful remarks about our wedding from our family and friends and feel that if any other happy event were to take place in our lives, Portico would be the first choice! Their attention to detail, and the ease to work with them made what we had heard was overwhelming, one of the easiest and most memorable experiences of our lives.

Amy and Kyle were awesome on our big day. Amy always went above and beyond to make sure all the details that you don't have time to worry about we're taken care of. She made sure everything was set up and decorated for us. All the little decorations we brought in to add to tables, our favors and made sure everything looked gorgeous. Through out the day Amy was constantly checking on our wedding party ensuring we had water and drinks. They have recently made some awesome updates to the facility that made all the difference. Bridal room was updated and awesome improvements we're made to the inside of the tent. On the night of our event after all our guests arrived the place just sparkled. It was truly magical. Our family and friends raved at how beautiful the venue was. A true hidden gem!

Amy and Kyle were very professional, knowledgeable and flexible with all the preparations for the wedding. I was so confident as the Mother of the Bride that everything would be under control on the day of the wedding. All my guests really appreciated the indoor and outdoor venue so they could enjoy and relax at the wedding. Compliments galore to this venue, it was a great party!!

I only had a 60 person guest list including the wedding party and wanted a more intimate setting that was not overly fancy but was still beautiful. I had seen several lower cost venues that were cramped and were not very accomidating for getting ready so I was not very pleased.

I had been to the Portico several times with a few other friends who were planning weddings on a budget. Kyle and Amy were very welcoming for my first visit. They were flexible with our down payments, head counts, and when we could come in to pay off balances due.

On our wedding day Amy kept me calm and collected and any "issues" that came up I was not made aware of unless Kyle and Amy could not fix it themselves. I would have to say they were a huge part in making our day stress free and fun. We came in almost 2k UNDER budget and still had a beautiful ceremony and amazing reception.

My husband and I were on a very tight budget for our wedding. He had just finished getting his degree and became an officer in the Army, and I am a public school teacher. At first we weren't even looking at this venue, due to the prices on the website. However, after calling and talking to Kyle and Amy (owners) we found out that they were in our price range. In fact we were able to have our wedding under budget without skimping on anything! When we saw this venue it just so happened to be after we had all of those terrible dust storms. To be honest, the place was a mess. Kyle and Amy were very apologetic and explained to us that it was due to the weather. My husband and I looked on their website and we loved the pictures of the place so we took a little leap of faith. We were able to choose from their vendors or use our own. When we were having trouble deciding what caterer to use, they let us bring an outside vendor and credited us the difference. As it grew closer and closer to our wedding date there were so many things that needed to be done or decided and Kyle and Amy were very helpful! Amy also let me call her whenever I had a last minute question or if something came up I didn't understand. She also did an engagement photo shoot and the pictures came out amazing! The actual wedding day itself came and there were little to no hiccups that day. Everything ran smoothly and I know it was because of Kyle and Amy and everything they did for us. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a great place to get married at.

Amy & Kyle were great and Portico was perfect for our day. Our wedding and reception were perfect in large part to Amy & Kyle's advanced planning and organization. I would recommend Portico and have in fact already done so several times!

Portico Wedding & Event Facility - Gilbert, AZ

I am going to get right to the point to any of the other brides reading this, choose Portico! Every other venue I looked at had a good price but then the extras started to get tacked on and it got so out of control. Why should I have to pay extra for real plates and forks and linens, that is crazy. I found Portico’s site online and decided to take a look even though I was sure I was going to leave angry again. It was in between open houses but Kyle said he would meet us there and sho us around and Amy and he could answer questions for us. So, right away I was impressed, but still cynical. Well being cynical lasted about 20 minutes after walking through their beautiful facility. Before I could even ask, they showed me the china which was included, the linens which not only were included but I could choose my own colors for no extra charge, and most of all the chair covers which were beautiful were included. Unbelievable I would already have been $1000 dollars over the set price at the other venues. I had a lot of family coming from Canada and North Dakota and I wanted them to experience Phoenix the right way and Portico had everything I loved. Lemon and orange trees surround the court yard, the entire outside is decorated in art, and the court yard was beautiful with its bridge covered pool surrounded by fire pits, fountains and other beautiful décor. The whole facility smelled beautiful and looked magical.

My husband and I were married in Vegas so we could have this big wedding later on (long story) so we did not require a minister, every other venue would not customize their packages for us but Kyle did. He worked with us through everything including my mother who is a wine maker, bringing in her own wine. Another cost saver was that Portico has you bring in your own liquor and pop but provides a bartender where most other venues require you to spend a certain amount on booze, and let me tell you after buying our own, people really do not drink as much as you think they would, so the cost is way lower than you would think, (and my family are drinkers).

I can go on and on about the facility but I also want to compliment the vendors that Kyle and Amy have teamed up with. The food was beyond good- that garlic butter chicken was amazing I loved it all. And the flower arrangements were breath taking. I came into the venue on my wedding day so stressed and upset and the first thing I saw in the dressing room was my bouquet and I almost cried, it was beautiful. Piece of Cake did an amazing job on our cake. It was exactly what I wanted-fun and yummy. But most of all the DJ, Rankin, was wonderful. He had everything planned out to the second. The wedding would not have been the same without his help, thank you Rankin. Oopps almost forgot the best part, my memories. The pictures taken by Amy were beautiful, she was wonderful- not pushy or snotty like many of the weddings I have been in. I had no idea what pictures to order more of because they were all beautiful. And the videography by Kyle was equally great.

There is nothing more to say except that my day was perfect and if you want that perfect day, this is the place to be. Heck I would work for them if they asked so I could enjoy more weddings there.

Thank you again for the kindness and for making my day beautiful.

Josh and Melanie

We got married on a sunny day in March 05, 2010 at the Portico. Planning a wedding can be quite stressful but with the help of God leading us to the right location, that stress slowly started to fade away. Our first initial tour at the Portico, was very lovely. It was perfect for a small, simple, and beautiful wedding. Amy was very kind and polite and made it clear that her and Kyle would do everything in their power to accommodate our needs. We ended up booking our wedding that day!! We appreciated Amy and Kyle's openness to our thoughts and ideas.

The fact that Portico provided choosing your own centerpieces and table cloths for the tables they provided, was fantastic!! There was plenty of colors and arrangements to choose from that were simple yet elegant.

The catering was very professional and the food was delicious. Amy and Kyle made sure that everything went smoothly on our wedding day and communicated us very well to make sure we were up to speed with what was going on. That was such a relieve.

Our overall experience as fabulous! Amy and Kyle were so easy to work with and truly cared about helping make our day amazing. We admire their hard work and dedication. Thank you Amy and Kyle for everything you have done for us, we are so thankful!

My husband and I had our wedding at Portico on April 3, 2009, and 30 days prior to the wedding we met with the owners Kyle and Amy Schafer to discuss the remaining details and provide a refudable damage deposit of $500.00. Two weeks after our wedding I sent an e-mail to Mr. & Mrs. Schafer thanking them for their services, and inquired about when to expect our deposit back. I received a response e-mail a couple days later stating that "according to the contract" they have 60 days after the event to return the deposit. We had no problem with this and sent an e-mail thanking them for their quick response.

Two weeks later I received an e-mail stating that due to financial difficulties and because other couples were scaling back on their weddings, everyone who had a Spring wedding would not be receiving their $500.00 deposit in full but would be receiving their full deposit in 10 equal payments of $50.00. The fact that we received an e-mail versus a phone call was very unprofessional to us, so we contacted an attorney who sent a demand for deposit letter to Mr. & Mrs. Schafer, in which no response was received.

In the e-mail we received regarding the payments that would be disbursed in full over 10 months, it also stated that we would be receiving these payments every month on the 15th. We received our payment in May on time but not for the full amount, because Mr. & Mrs. Schafer claimed that items went missing so deducted this amount from the $50.00 payments even though their e-mail stated everyone would receive a full refund (again another statement that was not followed through), but when the payment for June and July didn't come I proceeded to contact Mr. Schafer again receiving no response, and later received a check on the 29th of July for both June and July. I have spoken to numerous clients who are all having the same problem, and I find it funny how everyone received a check on the same date but received no response prior to the disbursement of these payments.

Apparently we have tried to settle this in small claims, but without a residential address and the owners signature we have yet to pursue our case legally. We have done everything in our power, but it seems that the owners have also done everything in their power to go into hiding and keep quiet. We are unsatisfied with the way they treat customers, and find it disturbing that there still in business not to mention treating people this way.
